An introduction to piezo MEMS oscillators Design How-To 2/26/2013 Post a comment Piezoelectrically transduced pMEMS resonators have emerged as one of the strong candidates for replacing quartz technology for high-frequency, low phase noise reference applications. In this paper, IDT introduces the design principles and performance characteristics of pMEMS oscillators.
How healthy is your heart? Design How-To 2/6/2013 Post a comment Medical equipments have one thing in common and that is the presence of electronics. From the tiny gadget that checks the amount of sugar in blood to the bulky ECG machine which measures your heart operation. This paper gives a small-window view of the places where electronics is used and has been sitting silently in our lives over the years.
Drones are, in essence, flying autonomous vehicles. Pros and cons surrounding drones today might well foreshadow the debate over the development of self-driving cars. In the context of a strongly regulated aviation industry, "self-flying" drones pose a fresh challenge. How safe is it to fly drones in different environments? Should drones be required for visual line of sight – as are piloted airplanes? Join EE Times' Junko Yoshida as she moderates a panel of drone experts.
